The Introduction sets the context of the E.MA course and is meant to familiarise students with the main issues and disciplines that they will study. Starting with a general introduction to human rights law and systems, the week critically analyses some current challenges through the use of international and regional cases/examples. It then concludes with multidisciplinary perspectives on the foundation of human rights and democratisation: human dignity.

Introduction Dr. Angela Melchiorre 17-23 September 2012 (week 1)

E.MA welcomes reader comments in order to promote thoughtful discussion on issues of importance to the Human Rights community. In the interest of maintaining a civil forum, E.MA requires that all commenters be appropriately respectful toward our writers, other commenters and the subjects of the articles. Vigorous debate and reasoned critique are welcome; name-calling and personal invective are not. While we generally do not seek to edit or actively moderate comments, E.MA reserves the right to remove comments for any reason.
